One of the biggest and longest-running music festival is currently taking place in New Orleans.

The 48th annual event is being held over two weekends from April 28 – 30 and May 4 – 7, 2017. Guests from all over the globe unite in New Orleans for daytime and evening entertainment.

Along with the historic music, the city also hosts a hotbed of culinary talent. Guests will be able to dive into the local flavor of New Orleans during their stay.

Today marks the last day of the first weekend. The weather is calling for cloudy conditions. If the sky stays clear enough, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers will celebrate on stage in connection with their 40th anniversary tour.
